The Chinese Eileen Gu crowned the FIS Freestyle Ski World Cup season with a perfect record in the women’s halfpipe after she triumphed on Mammoth Mountain, California on Saturday and the first crystal ball of her career.
The 18-year-old reigning world champion, who was born in the United States but will represent China at the Beijing Olympics next month, where she can win gold, delivered two solid runs and finished with a best time of 97.50.
The former halfpipe world champion Kelly Sildaru (92.50) from Estonia came second, while the American Brita Sigourney (87.75) took the bronze medal.
Gu will go to the Olympic Games in Beijing from February 4th to 20th full of confidence as she is a perfect four-on-four in the Halfpipe World Cup this season.
